N. J., January 21, 1867. He
played liis first professional base
ball with Willlamsport in 1884
and the next year went to Tren
ton. Jersey City bad him pn
1886 and he Joined the New York
club in 1887, remaining 11 years.
He quit tho game in 1898.
In addition to being a terrific
hitter, most dangerouß in a pinch,
Tiernan was a grand outfielder.
When in 1898 he caught his last
fly, he quit with the satisfaction
that he led the league outfield
ers that year with the splendid
percentage of .986.
For eight years Tiernan hit
over .300. His best years were
1805 and 1896, when he batted
.354 and .361 respectively.
Tiernan thinks the game is
faster today then when he played.
He picks Mathewson as the
greatest of pitchers and "Buck"
Ewlng as the most wonderful of
Tiernan made the longest hit
recorded in his time and for years
afterward. It is a question wheth
er it has ever been beaten. He
did it in a pinch, off the delivery
of one of the greatest pitchers
that ever faced a batter—"Kid"
This is the story, as Mike tells
"On May 12, 1890, Amos Rusle
was working for us and 'Kid'
Nichols of Boston. Both were In
great form and for 12 innings
had the batters at their mercy.
In the 13th I was at bat. with
two out and the score nothing to
nothing. I fouled off the first
hall Nichols pitched, the ball go
ing over the stand.
"That ball came back, but it
was wet and soggy and Nichols
wanted the new ball that had
been thrown out. His teammates
protested, but the umpire aaid
the new ball was in play.
"The first ball Nichols pitched
I laid the wood to for a home
run. The ball went over the
